Description: According to a recent Al Mayadeen TV report, the purpose behind Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s recent visit to Tehran was to pave the way for the signing of a comprehensive strategic cooperation agreement between his country and Iran.This comes after Iran and China signed a 25-year comprehensive strategic cooperation agreement of their own late last month.
Source: Al Mayadeen TV (YouTube) : Date: April 13, 2021
Sergey Lavrov is in Tehran. Iranians see the visit of the Russian foreign minister as important both in timing and content. The two parties signed two MOUs in preparation for the signing of a comprehensive strategic cooperation agreement similar to (Iran’s recent) agreement with China. This significant development in the relations between the two countries is accompanied by similar political stances in many areas.
Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iranian Foreign Minister:
The United States must understand that (imposing) sanctions is not the (right) approach for dealing with Iran. In addition, the European Union has proven, in its submission to the extremists in the US and the Zionist entity, that it no longer has a place in the international community.
In the same manner, the Russian guest condemned the policies of the US and Europe as well.
Sergey Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister:
We condemn any attempt to disrupt the nuclear negotiations, and we demand that Washington implements the nuclear agreement in full. We are surprised by the European Union’s decision to impose sanctions on some Iranian officials. We consider this a mistake worse than a crime, (a mistake) deliberately committed in the midst of the negotiations in Vienna.
The sudden European escalation that coincides with the Natanz incident may cast a shadow over the second round of the Vienna meetings, and cause tensions on multiple levels.
Iran realizes that it is difficult to cope with the accumulated crises, whether regarding its nuclear program and economic sanctions, or its (troubled) relations with the West and its conflict with Israel. However, (Iran) also realizes that its ties with Russia and China have become stronger than ever before and that this is sufficient to reduce American and European pressures placed upon it.

I get the impression there would be secret mutual defence provisions in Iran’s strategic agreements with Russia and China. All sides may have driven the hardest bargain by waiting as long as possible but now things have come to a head.
Russia has stated recently (I forgot by whom, probably Lavrov) that it rejects the idea of a defensive (Warsaw Treaty type) coalition, despite previous possibly ambiguous statements. Strategic ambiguity IMO.
Kremlin rebukes US over its obsession for sanctions against Russia
I used to think that the RF is a pathetic wuss for letting Anglo-Zionist bullies humiliate her then giving them the other cheek to be bitchslapped.
Peskov’s cvilised diplomatic language is easy to misread as giving an impression of weakness or desperation to kowtow, one step away from capitulation before vassalage.
To bullying victims who don’t give a damn about what the bullies’ groupie (presstitutes) say, a most subtle way to get back at the bullies is by refusing to take the bait, to “predictably” lash back when provoked.
Played right, the victim can hide a judo trick behind a polite smile, to later use the weight of the bullies to crush themselves. The victim’s polite smile, rather than rage or tears, also frustrate the bullies’ groupie who are after all paid to praise the bullies as superior, resulting in even more desperate lies and gossip.
“Highly likely” and all that tripe.
It would give many of us here satisfaction, but VVP isn’t about punching back. It’s not cowardice. It’s not fifth column liberalism. It’s a something else strategic judo move.
And what is this judo move in Tehran… This must be sending AIPAC and the entire moneylending circus into a hissy fit.
This is excellent! China backs Iran; Russia backs Iran; Russia and China work together; India is friendly to them; even Pakistan.
One day soon Asia will be a US-free zone.
Hang onto your hats folks…. the flailing and flopping about by the desperate ‘hegemon’ are only just beginning….
All of this is a response to the imperial policies of the US. As for the EU, it’s voice is becoming weaker as compared to the voices of it’s individual member states. The EU’s future is indeed questionable.
I am still hoping for a mutual defense treaty Russia-China-Iran-NK declaration on 21st of April.
On the other hand that would certainly mean an official cold war, as mass media would go into hyperventilation.
“I am still hoping for a mutual defense treaty Russia-China-Iran-NK declaration on 21st of April.”
So am I – It would be an excellent move & bugger the reaction from the Western MSM.
Most Trump supporters on this site will never acknowledge that Trump and Christian Zionist Pompeo brought us the closest to outright war with Iran and almost certainly Russia, that we’ve ever been. Trump first killed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, then he murdered General Soleimani. This was all to appease Sheldon Adelson who had thrown “30 pieces of silver” at Trump in 2016.
This was also to appease Trump’s Christian Zionist base who have a collective hard-on for Armageddon. He was their ticket to the Rapture, so of course he “won” the election, no matter how many votes he actually got. Much of Blinken’s challenge has been to clean up the mess that Pompeo made, and at the same time to do the “little dance” to appease Netanyahu and Likud, who had absolutely owned Trump.
Tommy, you may be entirely, 100% correct.
However, recall the payback missile attack by Iran on the Iraqi base where the US took 100+ head trauma casualties. (Probably, deaths, but never acknowledged.)
What was Trump and the CENTCOM’s reaction?
They accepted it and moved on.
It was a pre-arranged strike with deconfliction parameters.
Iran and the US agreed to the strike and its limits.
Hardly Armageddon for the Rapture Crowd.
So, I guess, Tommy, you are not correct at all.
You conflate some truths into a vast overstatement.
What would have Trump done if Iran over-reached and hit an American base or sunk a ship in the Persian Gulf?
He would have hit their oil industry infrastructure and the surface buildings of the nuclear energy sites. He said that clearly.
Not Armageddon. Proportional tit for tat.
Get all your facts, drop your filter of anti-Zionism and then analyze what may or may not happen. Or, you’ll be inaccurate.
Clear eyes, hard facts, then a hypothesis.
They don’t call us the AngloZIONIST Empire for nothing. Or, are you going to accuse the Saker of having an “anti-Zionism” filter as well? Zionism is chosenness, pure and simple. Just like Manifest Destiny is all about Europeans thinking they were chosen by God to come to this continent, displace the indigenous, and steal their land, so too have the Ashkenazim done the same in Palestine. US Christian Zionists have totally bought into this belief system and they were the heart and soul of Trump’s base.
If you didn’t notice the religious fervor of those Trumpsters who stormed the Capitol, you weren’t paying attention. Many of them were the same folks who want to turn the USA into some kind of Christian Zionist theocracy. As the chairman of the Republican Party of New Mexico, Steve Pearce, said back in December, “Trump is our president FOREVER, and no one can take that away from us.” He said this with true-believer certainty that was impervious to all facts and evidence to the contrary. No “clear eyes, hard facts, and then a hypothesis” for him, Larch.
LOL! I wouldn’t put too much stock in anything Steve Pearce says. He’s a bit of a flake and an extreme outlier, even by rural NM standards. We get more than a few of those out here in “The Land of Enchantment.” Must be the peyote.
If only he would use some peyote, he might have more insight into other-dimensional reality instead of the evangelical end-times eschatology he ladles out to ReTrumplicans in New Mexico. They are a dwindling minority, thankfully.
Larchmonter- thank Heavenly Father for your consistent voice of reason on this blog. I always look for your comments to get the inside skinny (as we say in KY). The very best to you.
@ Larchmonter445 @ Tommy Apeiron
“Clear eyes, hard facts, then a hypothesis.”
How I wish it was so. However, when I read the above article what immediately comes to mind is U’ Oh the Christian Zionists will be using the above article as just more proof that we are nearing the Gog / Magog War of Ezekiel 38 and 39. Until this utter nonsense and dangerous teaching/interpretation that views Russia as the great Magog of Ezekiel 38 and Germany as the great Gog of that same chapter believe me neither Russia nor Germany will find any peace. So yes Tommy Apeiron “They don’t call us the AngloZIONIST Empire for nothing.”
The real important issue would be how does the chosen nation feels about this ‘strategic agreement?’ Iran is their enemy and now Russia will be seen with suspicion. Y/N?
Surely you’re not defending Blinken and Biden here, are you Tommy? No fan of Trump or Pompeo at all, but I see very few “cleaning up of messes” happening by the current gang of criminals. They seem to be creating new and even bigger ones by the day so far. Reckless seems to be the only recurring theme among all US administrations, D or R, left or right, neo-lib or neo-con.
The disingenuous little dance that Blinken and company now has to do in Geneva to reinstate the Joint Plan of Action would not have had to be done if Trump hadn’t killed the original deal in the first place. Iran has ALL the cards and are playing them wisely. They are signing deals with Russia and China that will make US sanctions obsolete within months. Ominously, Israel is hard at work on something at their Dimona reactor site and is doing everything it can to provoke the Iranians. This will not end well no matter who is president of the USA.
The only mess Blinkin has picked up is picking up the crap out of his panties after he left the Alaska meeting with the Chinese.
The ‘Christian-Zionist’ demographic has been an irrelevant force in US politics for over a decade now. Even during the Bush years it was overstated. They have no real power and very minimal influence. Its ‘power’ was always a product of neoliberal propaganda; a way to obfuscate where the real influence on foreign policy came from.
Not if you listened to Netanyahu. He even boasted publicly that it was the American christian fundamentalist-baptist crowd that were his biggest supporters and influencers on US policy…
Boastful yes, but also a huge bullshitter. Likely he habitually mixes truth with lies, like the best liars.
Spot on Johannes. Some of these people here seem to be living in a fictional propagandic
world the Dems AstroTurfed into being in the 90s and 00s
Let’s be frank here. None of the people that take the decisions in DC – be they elected representatives or self anointed apparatchiks/corporats/bankstera are Zionist Christians
Many of them even have a very easily observable disdain for Christianity
I have a feeling Tommy is trying to push some sort of fringe agenda here
The only distain I have is for the pseudo-Christianity promoted by US Christian Zionists, the one that claims the Ashkenazim are the rightful heirs to all of Palestine because God gave it to them way back when.
Pastor John Hagee, founder of Christians United for Israel, gave the following sermon in 2018, “Jerusalem is the preordained capital of Christ’s 1,000-year empire, during which Christians and Jews (or at least some of them) shall live in peace after the unsaved have endured seven years of unspeakable horrors — a glorious end-times scenario for which Donald Trump paved the way by moving the embassy.”
That’s also why Trump killed the Iran nuclear agreement, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and why he murdered General Soleimani, all to provoke Iran into fighting the cataclysmic apocalyptic war Christian Zionists have been praying for. If there’s anything that is a fringe agenda, that’s it.
@ Tommy Apeiron
Not just Trump but more so Bush who said way back when Gog and Magog is at work in the Middle East.
I cannot begin to express my grave concern over this kind of thing. The demonization of the two nations Russia and Germany as Magog and Gog is not a minor matter. Surely for any one of us who grew up under the threat of communism and the Iron Curtain after WW2 too many of us tried to make sense of the world and all its suffering turning to the bible for answers. For many it looked indeed like the end of the world was nigh and especially so with the creation of the Atomic Bomb. Here we are 2000 thousand years removed from the crucifixion and the prophecies are starting to come to light. That many Christians in the West looked at the horrors of Nazism and Communism it was only logical for many to think wow look at this Gog and Magog has risen. Many Christians I fear living behind the Iron Curtain if asked about it they would have surely agreed wholeheartedly and screamed get me out of here now!!!!
But look I fear it is much, much worse. There is indeed a tidal wave of deception flooding into the church and my people do not know the difference between truth and error anymore.
Reminds me of the words:
“Your churches will be used to teach the Jews religion and in less than two hundred years, the whole nation will be working for Divine World government. That government that they believe to be divine will be the British Empire. All religions will be permeated with Judaism without them even being noticed by the masses, and they will all be under the invisible all-seeing eye of the Grand Architect of Freemasonry.” General George Cornwallis 1781
Don’t these words fit exactly to the present age.
Is this what we are facing? It is long past time for:
“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” 1 Peter 4:17
If I could I would gather all Church leadership the world over for a conference to resolve a great many things but I fear it may be God Himself who will do this. What a mess a divided mess the entire Christian Church is.
I’m also reminded of the words of Dante 1265-1321
“The state as well as the Church is an arm of God! Both were given by God! The state to secure man’s happiness here on earth. The Church to lead or show men the way to Heaven.
Neither is to seek supremacy over the other!”
Strange that the Church is divided but Freemasonry is united brotherhood? And in secrecy. Henry Makow wrote the best book on the subject The Cult that Hijacked the World. The entire world!!!!!! Including Russia I bet!!!!
Don’t hate the Evangelicals too much. If we are entering the end of the world and it could be proved as told by Christ well…
“About the time of the END, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the prophecies, and insist on their literal interpretation in the midst of much clamor and opposition.” Sir Issac Newton (1643-1727}
I can’t imagine sitting in the Oval Office and thinking too myself what could I be the last one to sit here before witnessing what Christ taught in Matt. 24 and if any of my actions will be responsible to bring about anything He said? What a truly frightening place to be in yes? Same I imagine for a Putin? Maybe this is why so much prophecy is incoherent to understand. What a thing to lay on a person you are the one spoken about two three thousand years ago? Can you imagine?This is a difficult matter indeed. Just think of Judas the betrayer. It was foretold and he didn’t know a thing about it and if he did read and know the scriptures what then? He could have changed the outcome. Same with the disciples who after the resurrection were so in shock at the happenings that Christ had to do what? Tutor them through the scriptures and show them everything that was written about Him! Again can you imagine them knowing this beforehand?
So lack of education and the importance of faith really! We are never going to know everything until after the fact. We are left with what then fear of course. Fear of God because life is far too fragile a thing to blow it through sin. That and let your words be yes or no because indeed everything else is sin.
What a strange world we live in.
Gerry your comment here, evoked a set of memories for me. Specifically, Cornwallis and Freemasonry in the establishment of convict colony Windsor in NSW Australia. If it’s alright with you, I’ll continue in the MFC
you give Trump too much credit. The the eternal elements of the US Regime are responsible for the actions. Whoever happens to be toying with himself in the Oval Office makes little difference.
If this was the case it would be all over the news. There’s nothing on https://english.almayadeen.net/news
Nothing on PressTV or Fars.
Does anyone know – even very roughly – what types of things might be covered by this agreement?
If so, I would love to see someone post something about it.
My hope is that there will be a transition from the current “rule by Western militarism and violence” to a world of multipolar diplomacy and and initiatives likely to ensure peace.
The details are probably kept as ‘secret’, as they did with china. Only China-Iran and Russia-Iran need to know the details, for now. No need to trigger troublemakers from the west.
But judging by the all smiles from the iran partner, either Lavrov share with him a really good joke or they are feeling safer and more hopeful in their region.
saw a news clip by iran reporter claiming the nation now have a future in the new multipolar world and they can now LIVE as normal ppl/family. they dont have to give in to terrorist around no more.
I personally want to know if gold was discussed…
Is China Preparing A Gold-Backed Yuan: Beijing Greenlights Purchases Of Billions In Bullion (see 0H)
I foresee Iran will be one of the clearing centre in ME for the new system.
Now the model is out and a reality – Iran would have military ‘protection’ from Russia and monetary ‘protection’ from China. Wait until Iran is a full member of SCO, everyone that is not Zone A would want the same/similar deal.
I now expect USSA and their assets to make some trouble there…
be well be safe
Military and economic protection makes sense. My guess is that this involves 1) specific tie ins to the various overland beltways / corridors and 2) that is coupled with military protection of the trade going through those routes.
Any attempt by the United States Navy to interdict trade then becomes an impossibility.
And, of course, non-naval intervention in Central Asia won’t work. Afghanistan is exhibit A for that proposition.
Maybe Iran will revive their plans to run a full-fledged oil trading bourse. It was met with quite a bit of fear and loathing when they introduced it ca. 2008 because they traded in non-US currencies.
A typical contemporary report (Geopolitical Monitor, Feb 2008):
What could truly mark the end of American economic and military dominance, however, is the Iranian oil bourse
planned to open on February 27. Should the non-USD denominated commodities exchange open and operate
successfully it would allow for the trade of oil and oil-backed derivatives in an alternative currency.
This would negate the necessity of holding large quantities of USD in foreign reserves. USD divestment would
follow and the USD would tank. The US military cannot be funded at its current levels without expanding the
money supply through the sale of suddenly worthless currency and bonds. The empire would crumble.
this, I would say, its now a peace time project… with obvoius ‘logistic’ issues/threats from the west should wait until the east has their ‘internet’ and all within their full control…
off to open thread 12
These three countries are non stop vilified and sanctioned because the have the balls to stand up for themselves. None of these countries and bunch of others should never trust the American government no mater who resides in the WH or for that matter the Europeans.
History has shown us how quickly the turn on their own agreements when it doesn’t fit their narrative and doesn’t serves their purpose.
Russia-China-Iran must show the rest of the World that engaging Americans or the Europeans on vital interests is utterly foolish as well as futile.
That hysterical banshee-like wailing that you hear is that of Israel and its Zionist Boy Toys in America, the Anglosphere, and Europe having a collective meltdown worthy of a 2-year old toddler.
Addressed to “NJ” as he notes “To bullying victims who don’t give a damn about what the bullies’ groupie (presstitutes) say…….
Please open this insightful Swizz website about WHO is really pushing the “bully” attitude by the US Media:
After you click on that you will see WHO is pushing this aggression: “COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS” The Bilderbirg multi-billionaires, amongst other nefarious Elite.
Below that Council, observe how Big Media in the US via the reporters who take their marching orders from this COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS. It’s an “eye-opener.”
It really eye-opening
Or as George Carlin would say, “It’s a big club and you ain’t in it!”
If you’ve never read Ron Chernow biography on the Warburgs I highly recommend:
“On January the 15th 1920, the appeal authored by Keynes and Paul Warburg and signed by many luminaries was issued to the press. Herbert Hoover, William Howard Taft, and J.P. Morgan Jr., cosigned the American version with Paul. They stated that burdensome reparations could foster revolution in Germany and Austria as popular revulsion against unjust debt bred an ugly desperate mood. the affected governments would print money to pacify the populace, generating inflation. This prescient document had no effect, as Hoover had warned Paul. Indeed the U.S. Treasury Department thought its dire predictions overblown and resented Paul’s involvement as possibly conveying an impression of official American favor. In April 1921, the Allies set the reparations tab at a stupendous 132 billion gold marks or 33 billion.” pg 223 Chernow.
“In economics, Pauls prophetic powers were as unerring as Aby’s in the cultural sphere, and he initiated a new phase as an embattled Cassandra. Whether from his Jewish background, personal sensitivity’s, or outsider status as an immigrant, he had a coldly detached vision of things. His Washington defeat had only sharpened his loathing for political folly and ineptitude. For the past five years, he thought the world had consumed more than it produced creating inflationary pressures. Now the governments were printing money instead of submitting to needed austerity. The world lives in a fools paradise based upon fictitious wealth, rash promises and mad illusions. he said, We must beware of booms based upon false prosperity which has its roots in inflated credits and prices.
Indeed global inflation crested in 1920 followed by a severe slump-the first confirmation of Paul’s grim prophecies.
There was a moralistic dimension to his predictions. Paul saw war time sacrifice giving way to intoxicated self 9indulgence-a theme he would sound up to the 1920 crash. He criticized America’s selfish retreat from the global responsibility and the materialistic frivolity of the Jazz Age. He thought America morally obligated to assist European recovery by reducing German war reparations and war debts owed to America by its Allies. Paul took on the stoic, unbending tone of a prophet who knew the world was weak, selfish and deaf to his warnings.” pg 223-224 Chernow.
Apparently the CFR was created by bankers who saw and learned the hard way that governments are just embicles who never learn anything from history and with the creation of the Atomic Bomb well there has to be a new administration set up upon the earth and these deluded are just falling into the same trap as so many other cultures and civilizations ending up today though as the ultimate control freaks who now have at their disposal computer tech to control the masses once and for all.” China’s glory the social credit system where you will soon have electronic money and a sin number tattooed into or on your person. One can call it legislated morality the control of your conscience and bread as Dostoevsky foretold.
For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure–one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
This is our brave new world.
Old man Profaci knew how to split his enemies.
The “grand strategists” of America’s ZioCon oligarchy? Not so much.
Blah blah, be quiet Andrew Korybko, or I’ll tell your mummy to take away your internet.
Seems to be a plague of MSM trolls infecting this site as of late, either way what puerile garbage you’re typing there Anon.
What a nonsense.
I would love to be a fly on the wall to in the room when the people in Foggy Bottom sit down to figure out what to do now and see the looks on their faces. Almost no one in the US knows anything about this or that the US Navy fled the Black Sea with their tails between their legs. The “Evil Russians” is all they know.
